Jada Pinkett-Smith: “The War on Men Through the Degradation of Woman”
"How is man to recognize his full self, his full power through the eyes of an incomplete woman? The woman who has been stripped of Goddess recognition and diminished to a big ass and full breast for physical comfort only.
The woman who has been silenced so she may forget her spiritual essence because her words stir too much thought outside of the pleasure space. The woman who has been diminished to covering all that rots inside of her with weaves and red bottom shoes.I am sure the men, who restructured our societies from cultures that honored woman, had no idea of the outcome. They had no idea that eventually, even men would render themselves empty and longing for meaning, depth and connection.
There is a deep sadness when I witness a man that can’t recognize the emptiness he feels when he objectifies himself as a bank and truly believes he can buy love with things and status. It is painful to witness the betrayal when a woman takes him up on that offer.
He doesn’t recognize that the [creation] of a half woman has contributed to his repressed anger and frustration of feeling he is not enough. He then may love no woman or keep many half women as his prize.
He doesn’t recognize that it’s his submersion in the imbalanced warrior culture, where violence is the means of getting respect and power, as the reason he can break the face of the woman who bore him 4 four children.
When woman is lost, so is man. The truth is, woman is the window to a man’s heart and a man’s heart is the gateway to his soul.
Power and control will NEVER out weigh love.
May we all find our way.”
~ Jada Pinkett-Smith, Sinuous Magazine
ST. LOUIS ARTIST DEPICTS AFRICAN AMERICAN FATHERS WITH THEIR CHILDREN
For the past year, artist and businessman Cbabi Bayoc has attempted to create a portrait a day of a father interacting with his kid.
The resulting project, titled “365 Days With Dad,” goes beyond showing fathers who go through the motions of parenthood, and shows engaging and teachable moments.
Originally from O’Fallon, Illinois Bayoc began this project as a means of stability, but over the course of a year it morphed into a means of preserving memories and encouraging parents to be their best selves when with their kids. [Continue to view all 365 days of Bayoc’s ouevre and support his effort by ordering prints.]

This movie is another wake up call to the minorities in America today. Society is not ready for a person(s) who prospers beyond reasonable doubt, they are expecting those who are in the minority caste system to be senseless and careless. We, meaning those who are apart of the demographic; who’s desires are great who are constantly looking for an easy route must be reminded how hard work and dedication will out weight an opportunity which may seem fitting for the moment. Imagine all your hard work going down the drain for an opportunity which seems fitting at the time; in every facet of life we must weight out our decisions to be a better reflection for others. When we are successful we must strive to show others their hopes and dreams can too be attained. Set the tone and do not be driven by your lust of tangible items with temporary gratification.
